PAUL F. TOMPKINS IS ONLINE

Next week, two of my worlds collide when The Thrilling Adventure Hour podcast crosses over with MPR’s WITS radio show.

WITS is a delightful program hosted by the most splendid John Moe, and upon which I have guested many many many times. You can catch it on the honest-to-God radio, or you can catch up with it via podcast here.

"Beyond Belief" is a segment of the live, staged fake-radio show The Thrilling Adventure Hour. Each segment of TAH is podcast individually. The “Beyond Belief” segment— starring myself and Paget Brewster as Frank and Sadie Doyle— concerns a pair of boozy paranormal investigators who are married to each other and to booze. It’s The Thin Man with ghosts. And more booze.

Booze.

Frank & Sadie Doyle, along with "Weird Al" Yankovic and musical guest Rhett Miller, will be visiting WITS on Friday, October 24th.

If you want to catch up on the adventures of Frank & Sadie Doyle. here are all of their adventures for your listening pleasure. They’re each about 20 minutes or so, with the occasional super-sized special episode along the way. I personally recommend all of them.

A new "Beyond Belief" comprises the latest episode of The Thrilling Adventure Hour, and you should listen to it. Not only do you get these two sexy drunks, you also get Ira Glass as a singing elf.

I was thrilled to have experienced Comicon for the very first time with my dear chums from The Thrilling Adventure Hour. This panel was so much fun to do, and we raised money for a good cause to boot. Thanks to Zachary Levi’s Nerd Machine for having us. - Paul

30 Rock’s Scott Adsit quickly snapped this photo backstage at the May 2013 Thrilling Adventure Hour in Brooklyn— Paget Brewster and I are about to make our entrance as Frank & Sadie Doyle. I am helping Paget up the stairs because I am a gentleman and because she is a lady who wears life-threatening ladyshoes. Director Aaron Ginsburg counts to one Euro-style in the background. Also pictured: a giant thumb monster.
